Memorial Day

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and this Memorial Day so far. Please don’t forget to stop to think about all who have given their lives in service to our country.image

I got to enjoy Saturday¬†afternoon at the Jazz Festival after kicking around the soccer ball for a bit, but unfortunately had a dead camera battery, so I only have phone pictures. Regardless, the weekend was beautiful, sunny, and the temperature remained in the upper 70’s to low 80’s. It was a perfect weekend to be outside, and Jeremy & I took advantage of the weather to walk almost everywhere, play pick up soccer, and enjoy the music in the park.¬†It’s such a blessing to be able to get outside and move, and we walked several miles every day!


I also managed to snag some Chobani yogurt and coupons! I tried the Pineapple Coconut and it was delicious!

We have plans to celebrate my dad’s birthday (which was last week but they just got back in town) later this evening, and I picked up some goodies from Trader Joes to share with the family. I’ll share some of my favorite Trader Joes finds tomorrow, but it’s one of my favorite spots to snag some great food (and drinks!).

Off to my parent’s house then to get some rest!


3 Day Weekend Plans, Atlanta Jazz Fest.

Good evening!

Memorial Day weekend has arrived! Jeremy and I are staying in town this weekend. Plus, he works a couple hours on Saturday and Sunday and the money isn’t worth giving up. But that’s perfectly fine because Atlanta has plenty going on, and all within walking distance.

Today was pretty laid back, so I won’t bore you with my work and excitement. My legs were so sore from my front squats on Wednesday that I could barely walk “normal” today (SECOND DAY SORENESS IS ALWAYS THE WORST FOR ME), so I started my day with a quick 20 minute workout on the spin bike with some additional upper body work (ring dips, pushups, pullups) when I picked Jeremy up after work. I did, however, upload some new artwork to my illustration portfolio that you can check out if you’d like to see some of the creative work I like to do!

Tonight we are planning on catching the second Hawks game with some friends, and this weekend is also the Atlanta Jazz Festival in Piedmont Park.

atljazzfest2010The funny thing is, I had just uploaded an old poster I had done as a mock-up for the jazz festival in 2010 onto my Illustration portfolio & completely forgot that this weekend is the 2015 Festival. The weather is supposed to be gorgeous so expect some photos from our walks to Piedmont Park for the music & maybe some pickup soccer as well, for sure!

Do you have any plans for Memorial Day weekend? Any basketball fans? I’ve never loved basketball but I am super excited for the Hawks – Atlanta needs a team to do as well as they have!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
